Palm trees and the beautiful blue waters of the Pacific Ocean greet you the second you open the front door of Poipu Palms 202.

This is the beginning of your perfect Hawaiian vacation.

Overlooking the powerful Pacific Ocean and the spectacular Poipu coastline, this nani (beautiful and enjoyable) resort is ohana (home) to twelve oceanfront condos that feature spectacular views as well as a beautiful ocean-front swimming pool, sunset deck and BBQ. Located in the heart of Poipu Beach, you have access to all that Kauai has to offer; sandy beaches for swimming and snorkeling, exciting hiking trails, waterfalls, golf, shopping and more. A favorite pastime is simply watching the ocean from your expansive lanai and listening to the waves crashing on the rocks.

Wake up to the sounds of the sea. From your 30-foot private lanai watch Honu (sea turtles) and seasonal Kohala (humpback whales), enjoy spectacular island sunsets and tropical breezes all in the comfort of your island home.

Poipu Palms is a boutique complex with only 12 units. You will have easy access, mostly on an oceanfront pathway, east to Shipwreck Beach and the Grand Hyatt Kauai where you can wander around lush tropical gardens or indulge in a reviving treatment at the world-class Anara Spa. You are also a short distance to the Marriott, Kauai Sheraton, Poipu Beach Park, the iconic Brennecke’s Beach and Beach Grill.

The owners of Poipu Palms take great pride in our Hawaii homes. We have completed this past November a $350,000 refurbishment of our ocean-front pool and sundeck areas. All looking over the spectacular Pacific Ocean.

For sleeping arrangements there is a queen bed in the master bedroom and two twin beds in the second bedroom. The linens high quality Egyptian cotton.

For your beach excursions the condo comes equipped with four new Tommy Bahama sand chairs, a Tommy Bahama umbrella, luxurious beach towels and sand toys.

Our two bedroom, two bathroom condo offers cable TV with DVD player, free wireless internet. There is a washer/dryer and a fully equipped kitchen with spices and seasoning oils. The kitchen under-the-sink cabinet containing laundry soap and cleaning products has an easy-to-use toddler-proof locking mechanism. We provide welcoming Hawaii coffee, toiletries, paper products and laundry detergent.

Ho'olu komo la kaua, (please join us) at our island retreat on the Garden Isle of Kauai. You will never forget your stay.

Aloha and Mahalo.

The condo was beautiful and clean. The check in process was easy. There were a few issues but the hosts were quick to get them sorted out. Would recommend this condo to anyone looking for a relaxing home away from home.

We have stayed in Poipu many times. We were intrigued by the VRBO listing and it most definitely did not disappoint. The condo is beautifully done with spectacular views of the ocean. We took advantage of the lovely renovated deck where we would watch the sunset while the waves were hitting the rocks below. The location is perfect and feels more like a cozy family home than a resort. Our favorite spot was the lanai where we spent many hours reading and watching whales and dolphins frolic in the surf. We will be back 😀



February 2024
Pictures do not do this place justice! Absolutely perfect in every way. Awesome location, and you cannot beat the views. Enjoyed starting every morning on the deck overlooking the ocean. Saw so many whales and dolphins too. So many great memories made here, hoping to be back again someday!

We really enjoyed our stay at Poipu Palms. The condo was clean, well-appointed, and had all the things we needed to enjoy a lovely vacation. We enjoyed use of the boogie boards, and would have used the other beach equipment had we spent more time lounging on the beach. The lanai was a favorite spot for morning coffee and meals. We would absolutely stay here again!

This trip was a dream come true. The property was wonderful until the group of men above us arrived and they were very loud starting at 0430. The condo was beautiful, clean and had beautiful grounds. We loved watching the sea turtles off the deck!

We loved staying at Poipu Palms. The location and views were incredible, and we utilized the deck with ocean views and the gorgeous pool every day! It was great having a washer/dryer as well. Perfect sized place for our family.

Breath taking views of the ocean! Condo has everything you need for a comfortable stay. Very close to Poipu beach and others. Beach chairs, cooler and toys were very thoughtful. Highly recommend!

The view is amazing. You can spend hours sitting on deck. Shops 5 min drive to get groceries. Very quiet so got to relax.

This was the perfect place for my friend and I. Plenty of space with a wonderful view. The property is also pretty centrally located for driving to neighboring cities. The hosts were wonderful and extremely accommodating. Very much appreciate the communication and flexibility. We will certainly be back!

Great hosts, kids loved the beach toys and boogie boards. Kitchen has what you need and the Lanai was everyone’s favorite spot.

When you're out and about in beautiful Poipu, it was always wonderful coming "home" to the beautiful ocean view to chill before your next activity. To just be able to see the beautiful ocean all day and hear it all night - will soothe every bit of stress out of your life. Highly recommend. Management extremely responsive - one fan was broken and Jeremy (name & number easily found in welcome binder) came shortly thereafter with a new one. Mahalo!

Poipu Palms 202 was a beautiful place to stay. Our family enjoyed the amazing view from the lanai every morning and evening. We were able to catch a glimpse of a pod of dolphins some days and everyday watched the enormous sea turtles swim near the rocks. The complex was located within walking distance to a couple of beaches and we also enjoyed dining at a few local eateries. Our drive to adventure out on the island was minimal and Kauai has now become our favorite island. Kristen kept us well informed about the facility during our stay. Thank you for having such a wonderful place for our family to stay! We will definitely be back.



August 2023
We spent most of our time outside admiring the gorgeous view either on the patio or on the community lanai. The first day we arrived the weather was hot and humid, we worried about the lack of air conditioning. It was quite warm inside the unit even with all of the doors and windows open. The kids jumped in the pool to cool off. Once the sun set it was fine. The remainder of our stay was not as warm. The management was responsive to our needs. We were even out of dishwashing pods and they brought some for us to use. Having a laundry inside the unit was very convenient for bathing suits and towels. Overall, we would come back to stay at this beautiful property.



August 2023
This is such a beautiful condo in every way! The view is amazing! The owners and property managers are so easy to work with and quick to address questions and concerns. We have stayed here twice and look forward to our next stay.

Beautiful! View was amazing! Pool right by the ocean where we saw turtles swimming daily 😍 Condo was furnished with everything we needed to make our vacation complete! Loved the way the complex was small, seemed so much more intimate. Fantastic location! Will definitely return!♥︎

This was our second time staying in your beautiful condo. Everything we needed was there! Nice quiet property with a sensational view. The lanai is always shaded and the trade winds keep this condo cool. I loved sleeping with the ocean waves pounding and the breeze coming through!! Mahalo and Aloha!


Victoria K.
June 2023
Lovely condo in really the perfect location! Gorgeous view and very well appointed - worked quite well for our family of four. Quick walk or drive to Brennecke’s- our kids enjoyed using the provided body boards and sand toys. The pool was great and we enjoyed many meals and cocktails on the lanai watching sea turtles and dolphins. There is no A/C, and while there are fans and a great cross breeze, leaving windows open means you can hear street noise which was slightly disruptive to sleep. That said, we would still stay here again in a heartbeat!

May 2023
We loved our stay the condo is beautiful and the views are breathtaking. It is in a amazing location. Ocean front. The only drawback is it is a noisy place at times because there is close neighbors and other condos remodeling. That is no fault of the owner. Very nice vacation. Thank you.

We were excited to take our adult son to Kauai for the first time and wanted to find the perfect place where we would all be comfortable. This unit was absolutely perfect. We had plenty of space, comfortable furnishings and amazing views! I was concerned about the lack of AC but was very comfortable with the fans and slept great! We highly recommend this property and hope to be back for another visit!

This place needed a good cleaning. The louvered doors near the master bed were thick with dust and there was hair on the floor of the linen closet and shower. We thought it should have been cleaner with what we paid for the cleaning fee.

We have stayed in this unit twice and have booked for next year. The wear and tear of many visitors and humidity is starting to show. Poipu Palms is a very special place.

Lovely location. We appreciated finding some cooking staples in the cupboard, and a great selection of pots, pans and utensils. The large deck and comfortable seating made whale and turtle watching very enjoyable.

We had a fantastic stay at Poipu Palms over Thanksgiving. The view is stunning and the sounds of the ocean can be heard from all areas of the condo. We slept with all the windows open so we could hear the ocean at night. the positioning of the condo on the second floor and how it is staggered from the neighbors made it feel completely private. The bed was extremely comfortable. The kitchen was the most the most stocked of any rental we have stayed at and it was a great location in proximity to Poipu beach. The small complex was quiet and private. We loved the deck overlooking the ocean and the kids loved the pool. The owners and management company are extremely accommodating and responsive. We would definitely stay here again.

The unit was clean and comfortable. Perfect location - within walking distance to beaches, and scenic views from the lanai and pool deck. Quick drive to the local town of Koloa for good eats and shops. Overall an amazing stay!

September 2022
No A/C which is not a problem but that means you need every available window open for a breeze. And with that comes all the noise. Because all the units are so close together you can hear EVERYTHING! If you are light sleeper, this will be a problem. You can hear drunk people on the lanai, traffic from the road, conversations by people walking by, street walkers, etc. It’s a lovely unit but the stomping in the unit above gets tiring. I slept with active noise cancelling headphones on. Comfortable beds, great location, AWESOME ocean views. Just really noisy.


Lynn D.

The ocean is an overwhelming presence. It breathes, it roars, it sings. The colors are ever changing. The palm trees are swaying in the breeze. It is one of the best places I have ever stayed at. On a more practical side, the bedrooms were very nice, the bathrooms perfect and the kitchen splendidly equipped. The living room spacious and welcoming. The lanai (balcony) the focus of our stay - we had all our meals there at the table for four. The swimming pool was very nice and my granddaughter loved it. The grounds are beautiful and well kept. All in all - a wonderful experience!


Justine L.
August 2022
We had an AMAZING week long stay. The beach chairs and umbrella were so helpful. The place was fully stocked with everything we needed to cook and enjoy our time. The beds were comfortable and it was very clean. We did see several turtles off the sun deck. Loved the location, so close to Poipu Beach and places to eat etc.

This was an amazing Appartement! We enjoyed every Second. Even saw dolphins from the lanai!

We were super selective choosing a property for one of our last family vacations before our oldest graduates. This property exceeded expectations. Everything is updated, beautiful, comfortable and leaves nothing to want. The condo has beautiful appliances, detergent, etc. The view is beyond proper description. We enjoyed early quiet mornings with coffee, and evenings listening to the surf. It’s a 15 out Of 10. Absolutely beautiful. We will definitely be back, and we will refer all we can to enjoy this incredible property. Super special, and so grateful we booked our vacation at Poipu Palms 202!

This condo was wonderful. Clean, great views, good locations, well stocked with useful items. We traveled with our 10 and 12 year olds and were all pleased. We would definitely recommend and go back ourselves.

We had a fantastic time celebrating our daughter's high school graduation. The view from the lanai is amazing, and the property is also walking distance to both Poipu beach (good snorkling and turtles coming on the beach to rest every night) and the Grand Hyatt (Tidepools restaurant). We also really appreciated that the kitchen had everything we needed and the beach gear all seemed relatively new (coolers, beach chairs, etc). Highly recommend!

Our fourth trip to the islands, our fourth island, our third VRBO rental, and our best stay yet! Unit 202 at Poipu Palms exceeded the description as advertised. Great space, perfect size, excellent location, and turtles swimming in the sea below us all day long. I highly recommend it to anyone (small family or couple) and will definitely book again on our return to Kauai international future. Thank you for helping facilitate an awesome amd memorable vacation! Joe

The condo was beautiful and very comfortable for our family of four. We appreciated the outdoor grill (with charcoal provided) and having a washer and dryer. We we’re also pleasantly surprised by the easy walking distance to poipu and brennecke beaches. The lanai was huge and we loved watching the turtles

An incredible view with a big lanai and living space, centrally-located to hikes, beaches, church, stores, food shopping and great restaurants (especially Merriman’s). The pool overlooks a low cliff and sea turtles in abundance proved to be an absolutely relaxing and enjoyable pastime. Our hostess was fabulous, and we will be returning…


Jay W.

Very clean and well stocked in kitchen and with beach accessories. Diane was super as property manager keeping us informed. Very nice deck area overlooking ocean, turtles, seals and whales. Wished it had air conditioning as it was tough to dry towels and even clothing. Else a wonderful time and would return again. Mahalo!

We recently spent 3 glorious nights at the Poipu Palms during a last-minute trip to Kauai. We have stayed several times at this complex in the past, but this was our first stay in this particular second-story unit. The (recently?) renovated and open kitchen/living room area of this unit is sparkling clean, functional and fantastic, with breathtaking views of the ocean from all of the windows and from the large lanai. The building was quite full during our stay, but, we were pleasantly surprised by how few people were using the small but functional swimming pool and the outside communal deck area. In the past, we have used the charcoal grill out on the lawn, but we didn't this time (nor did anyone else) during our short visit. The condo location is safe and convenient for an easy walk to Poipu Beach park at sunset or to nearby restaurants at some of the larger hotels in the area. We had great communication with the property manager. We just wish we could have stayed for another week!


Rachel K.

We had an absolute blast. In fact, if we come back to Poipu I will most definitely try to rebook for here. Loved it!

We truly enjoy staying here as it was pretty centrally located to anything on the South end of Kauai. We saw sea turtles swimming by from the sun deck and after a short walk to Poipu beach, a monk seal and more sea turtles. Everything was as stated. Little fish coffee, just like 5 mins away had really good food, as did hologrill. Went on an ATV tour at Kipu Ranch Adventures and all of us loved it and would recommend it. Mahalo!

This is our 6th or 7th stay at Poipu Palms since the mid-90s. We’ve usually rented 303 or 203. This was our first stay in 202. It is beautifully furnished and the kitchen is fully equipped. The full range of toys and equipment for the pool & beach was wonderful. The manager was very responsive and helpful. Our only suggestion — one or two chaise lounges on the lanai or, at minimum, a couple of footstools for the chairs. Mahalo for a very relaxing 3 weeks!! We’ll be back to Poipu Palms!

Everything about this place was perfect. The owners and property manager made sure our stay was comfortable and easy. We had to change some dates last minute and they were very accommodating and so kind and helpful. The condo is gorgeous. The location is amazing and the view is incredible. You can fall asleep to the sound of the ocean from the master bedroom, watch turtles and whales from the huge lanai and cook a full meal in the well stocked kitchen. The condo is very comfortable, clean and modern, more spacious than it appears in photos and the bedrooms are well separated for privacy (perfect for us with a teenager). They have thought of everything- extra towels, pillows, beach chairs, coolers, beach toys, umbrella….The building has a small number of units and is laid out well for privacy between units. The pool, pool deck and patio overlooking the ocean are gorgeous and we spent every sunset out there. Can’t say enough about this condo and the owners/manager. Exactly what we needed. Mahalo! We’ll be back.

Even though it rained a lot during the time we were there, the views were great when it was sunny/cloudy. The space was clean and well organized before we moved in. Big thanks to Diane for being so welcoming and accommodating!

What a great place to spend a week with your family in paradise. I don’t think I’ll stay in a hotel again. Being able to relax on the lanai with coffee and make breakfast was ideal. We used every amenity. The pool, terrace, and grounds were perfect. We never felt crowded. The louvered windows were perfect to allow the sound of the crashing waves throughout the house. The kitchen was very well stocked with everything we needed, and having a W/D makes all the difference going home with suitcases full of clean clothes.

The location is perfect! I can’t say enough about the view. You can hear the waves and relax watching the water. The condo looks recently remodeled and the colors put you into immediate, island relaxation mode. Enter the parking area from the furthest driveway if you don’t have a 4WD because lower cars will bottom out due to the steepness. Also, the shower head in the main bathroom is much nicer and more comfortable than the master one. The kitchen is very well stocked which I really appreciated. Highly recommend this unit! Would love to come back soon! Absolutely one of the nicest units we’ve been in! ❤️

This was the second time we have stayed here. I honestly don't think I would stay anywhere else. The condo was super clean. Communication is perfect. The location is amazing. The condo provides everything you could need for an amazing family trip. We can't wait for our next trip to Kauai, and we definitely plan on staying at Poipu Palms. Thank you again for sharing your piece of paradise with our family. Mahalo!

From the get-go, this property and the owners and manager have exceeded our expectations! The views are to die for, the amenities are thoughtful (beach chairs, umbrella, cooler, boogie board), the kitchen well stocked, the beds comfortable, everything clean and tidy! The communication with Randy, Mav and Diane was always quick and thorough. We really appreciate everything they did to make our stay memorable!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Clean and simple. Nice art. Beautiful view. Walkable to Poipu beaches and Puka Dog. We spent a lot of time at Da Crack (burritos; order online to save time), Waikomo Shave Ice (which is all-natural and amazing), and the little market between the two with a Poke bar inside. Happy Hour at Merrimans and Eating House is not to be missed. Wonderful home base for this whole trip!

The property was very clean with updated amenities. We were able to sit out on the balcony every night and eat diner, have drinks and watch the ocean waves crash against the shore line. We saw tons of turtles swimming in the surf! The temps in Poipu were mid 70's to mid 80s. I am one who can not sleep when it is warm. This was a small concern for me when booking this unit with out AC. We were able to turn on the fans and open the windows to keep it cool enough. The unit did come with multiple boogie boards (the smaller ones were not in great shape, but our son still enjoyed), coolers, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, and some sand toys. Also, the kitchen was fully stocked. Overall this unit exceeded all of our wants and needs. We had a very comfortable and refreshing stay.

This review is a little belated as we stayed at this unit in Poipu Palms in mid to late July 2021. We have stayed in the Poipu area many times in the past in different condos and rentals and we can say with confidence that this is one of the nicest units we’ve ever had and one of the best locations. The unit was exceptionally well maintained and had absolutely every possible item that you could imagine needing while staying there. There were lots of staples as well and even a few bottles of rum! There were beautiful flowers and cookies upon our arrival and the property manager Diane was extremely responsive to the one or two issues we had. The unit was very clean and well-maintained and updated and the view was absolutely unparalleled. The building only has 12 units so it feels cozy and not like a sprawling condo complex. You can walk to Brenneke beach and the general Poipu area and it is close to everything but yet tucked away in an upscale residential neighborhood. We could not recommend this unit highly enough and hope to return soon.


Kristin K.
August 2021
We had an incredible week at Poipu Palms and I can’t recommend it enough. My husband and our 2 kids (5 and 8) absolutely loved our stay. The condo is so clean and fresh and the location is fantastic. It is truly stocked with everything for the beach which made it easy and fun. It’s also really well organized to make it easy to unpack and settle in. We have stayed at many VRBOs that we enjoyed but this one takes the cake! Thanks so much to the owners for sharing their piece of paradise. I hope we are able to come back someday!

This condo is, by far, the most well-stocked condo that we have ever stayed in. It was clean, comfy, and you can't beat the view. We hope it's available when we visit again!
